Michelle's Harvest

The White House garden had a photo op, a harvest day to parallel the planting session with school children in April. Just two months into the Summer, the harvest is plentiful. I, Nancy, was concerned that they would miss the opportunity to talk about saving seed. Without seed, there is no garden. It won't be possible to simply trot to the store and buy seed, or purchase from a website on a nonexistent Internet. I was pleased to see that the opportunity was not lost. Seed saving got a mention.

Michelle Obama Garden Harvesting Outfit: Comin' Up Roses!
June 6, 2009
Children from the Bancroft elementary school who had helped First Lady Michelle Obama plant a vegetable garden in April were invited back today to harvest vegetables. White House associate chef Sam Kass said the garden has produced lettuce, snap peas, beans, kale, collards and chard. The children were accompanied by their principal and teachers. The children concentrated on harvesting lettuce and peas. No chemicals - fertilizer or herbicide - had been used on the garden, but that the underlying White House soil had been "amended" with crab meal from the Chesapeake Bay, green sand compost and lime powder. The only problem he had noticed is that "something is nibbling a little bit on the kale." The garden "is not "certified organic." There has been one big weeding once a week. 90 pounds of produce has been harvested from the garden, including broccoli and green beans and "one beautiful eggplant." The garden has produced only one cucumber, saved for the children to harvest today. It is supposed to be a white cucumber, but it had turned yellow. The children were told that the Thomas Jefferson lettuce has already gone to seed and the children were told about farmers passing seed down through the generations.

Now the Queen of England is following suit, having a royal garden this year. A related trend is the increased incidence of college students seeking summer internships on farms. Where this might be related to the struggling economy, there is a distinct enthusiasm among these students for the calluses and aching muscles that come with the job.

Many Summer Internships Are Going Organic
May 23, 2009
Erin Axelrod, who graduated from Barnard College last week with an urban studies degree, will not be fighting over the bathroom with her five roommates on the Upper West Side this summer. Instead she will be living in a tent, using an outdoor composting toilet and harvesting vegetables on an organic farm near Petaluma, California. Whatever the reason, the interest in summer farm work among college students has never been as high, according to dozens of farmers, university professors and people who coordinate agricultural apprenticeships. Andrew Marshall, who began organizing apprenticeships for the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association in 2003, used to see an average of 75 applications a year. This season, he has fielded over 200, with more coming in every day. Katherine L. Adam, who runs the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service, financed by the Department of Agriculture, said 1,400 farms sought interns this year, almost triple the number two years ago. The number of small farms, which attract the new agrarians and can use the cheap, enthusiastic help, has grown sharply since 2003, according to the department.

Per the Zetas, these changes reflect the subconscious awareness of the times ahead, typical of contactees.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/15/1995: Contactees who have become comfortable with their understanding of the alien presence and any role they have volunteered to perform during the Transformation are seldom passive. They reflect this in their daily life, as is inevitable following any overreaching concept grasped or heavy commitment. Just as the decision to settle down into married life can often be read by others, as perhaps taking up cooking or giving up singles parties, likewise the awakened contactee can often be recognized. The signs are subtle and in the normal course of human events would leave no mark, in that the alien presence is seldom discussed. But the awakened contactee changes, in not so subtle ways, the whole course of their life. The impact can be equated to joining the priesthood or the peace corps or the military. The contactee's whole life is affected.

And the collective conscious is also a factor, as food prices have been going up outside of the rate of inflation.

ZetaTalk Comment 6/7/2008: The collective conscious is often mentioned as a reason the populace seems to become aware of matters without being told directly by the media or the authorities. It is more than telepathy. It is body language noted during everyday activities, and also simply computing what is happening and extending this out into the future. Food prices are rising dramatically. This would not be happening if shortages were not happening. It is only logical to realize this. Price gouging to the extent of the current price rises would not be allowed. The gouging would not be overlooked. Those who can garden are anticipating saving money, and don't anticipate that prices will go down. This is occurring whether or not they are aware of a larger picture re Planet X, etc.

One Billion Starving

The UN has announced that the number of people in dire need of food has topped one billion. Though this is not much higher than the 963 million in that category in 2008, it graphically shows the state of the world and the trend.

U.N. Warns of Catastrophe as Hungry People Top One Billion
June 12, 2009
High food prices have pushed another 105 million people into hunger in the first half of 2009, the head of the U.N. World Food Programme said, raising the total number of hungry people to over 1 billion. Urging rich nations at a meeting of G8 development ministers not to cut back on aid, Josette Sheeran said the world faced a human catastrophe as more people struggle to eat a decent meal. In 2008, FAO said the world's hungry numbered 963 million. The agency says it has had to cut food aid rations and shut some operations in eastern Africa and North Korea because of the credit crunch. She said despite a decline in most food prices from record peaks last year, they remained high in developing countries, while global food aid was at a 20-year low. The financial crisis has made things worse, and in terms of staple food, people in poorer countries today can only afford about a third of what they could afford three years ago.

The Zetas, and the Zetas alone, predicted crop shortages at this time, due to the weather extremes such as drought and deluge which they also predicted in 1995, when no one else was making such predictions.

Question: What factors have made this situation different from previous years? I remember when US farmers produced so much wheat that it depressed the market so much, many chose to let crops rot in the fields rather than harvest them to sell for a loss.

ZetaTalk Answer 6/13/2009: This is almost entirely due to weather related problems. We and we alone predicted crop shortages back in 1995 when the ZetaTalk saga first began. We knew that the wobble would develop and what it would do to the weather, which we also predicted with great accuracy back in 1995 when no one else was mentioning this. But problems with crop shortages actually appeared in 2000, due to the weather. It was not the wobble alone that causes weather related problems, as the roiling core of the Earth, responding from a distance to the approach of Planet X, likewise affects the weather by affecting undersea volcanoes. Drought, deluge, late frosts, early spring thaws, and dying bees. All are affected by the weather or the roiling core which affects the immune systems of bees.

Finegan Fine

I wrote a new script, converting this to book form free to the public, about life in the Aftertime on a houseboat. The hero is Finegan Fine, based on a true life character who made many contributions to the Troubled Times topics in its early days. Being a trader in the Aftertime, running a boat up and down flood swollen rivers, was his idea. Quoting from the Introduction to the online book, which is available both as a PDF file and chapter by chapter in web format:

This is a tale about a houseboat living in the Aftertime. The pole shift has happened and the waters have risen several hundred feet due to melting poles and glaciers and the heating of the ocean bottom. The rising sea level is happening slowly but steadily, forcing survivors to relocate when they discover the flood is not receding. Finegan Fine has found a niche in this new world by running a trading boat along the new coastline and up and down ever broadening rivers.

The main theme is the sociological adaptation of the populace to the lack of rescue and rising waters after the cataclysms. Finegan meets survivors from all walks of life: the very wealthy who expected to survive in their well stocked enclaves, the politically connected who expected rescue on demand, the wealthy who thought their bankroll would buy them comfort, suburbanites unprepared to be self sustaining, those who stubbornly refused to leave their cities and towns and steadily starve to death, families who are separated from each other, rural folk familiar with local produce, immigrants caught a long way from home, pedophiles peddlers selling children, the handicapped who take hardship in stride, military men cut off from their commanders, former politicians trying to establish a continuity of government, those who turn from their responsibilities and those who raise orphans and care for the aged, teens without supervision, the deluded who think the good times will return, and those trying to maintain slave labor camps.

A second theme is the devastation itself, which is widespread. Florida is under water, trapping those who lingered too long. Coastal subdivisions and river front towns are steadily flooded, often forcing people to repeatedly relocate. Satellites have been torn from the sky, so communications are by short wave radio at best. Rescue is simply not forthcoming. A third theme is survival techniques. Survivors adapt by eating atypical but highly nutritious foods. They live in makeshift shacks and tents. Electricity is generated from windmills or by pedals. Barter is the mode and the dollar is dead. A fourth theme is how people react to the crisis - by rising to the challenge and helping one another or by looting and hoarding. Survivors are on their own and must rely on resourcefulness and cooperation with others for survival. Those that mistreat others find themselves without supplies or friends in due time.

An example of what to find in the free book is a portion of the chapter titled The Orphanage. This chapter, one of 25 the book offers, not only addresses the distress of those newly orphaned after the pole shift, when social services will likely to stopped altogether, but takes the opportunity to educate the public about a little known meat substitute. Corn and Amaranth, when mixed together, form a protein equivalent to meat. A third issue addressed is the ease with which chickens can be kept if free ranged in a temperate climate. Bugs are their preferred meal and they are aggressive in snatching up bugs. The result: a bug free garden with a bonus of eggs and meat.

The orphan mistress has graying hair, barely pinned on top of her head in a bun. Her dress is tattered and hanging on her body as though at one time she were somewhat overweight. She looks immensely weary, and walks as though she might not make the next step. She stops to take her breath and looks up at the visitors. Seeing them non-threatening, she raises a hand weakly, as though saying a "hello", and then walks forward toward the dining area. She takes a seat on the picnic table, sighing as though relieved to be off her feet. Taking a deep breath to gain her strength, she lifts her face to smile at the visitors and waves them forward to join her. She directs her charges.
Stir that fire and put on a pot. We'll serve some tea.
Finegan introduces himself.
Morning mam. Finegan Fine here and my partner Joey. I'm a trader, moving up and down these parts. Got my houseboat out there at the end of your field. Pretty impressive plots you have there. You plant and harvest that all by yourself?
The orphan mistress smiles and winks at the absurdity of this idea.
Fortunately, I've got plenty of help.
She leans back, having caught her breath, and continues to direct her young charges.
Honey, use that other pot. It has a spout. That's it.
Finegan says,
These aren't all yours . .
The startles orphan mistress responds,
Oh Heaven's no. I'd surely be in the ground if that was the case! Picked them up in Montgomery when the troubles hit. I was down there visiting, checking on some friends of mine that can't move around so good no more. After I buried them . . heart attack and such . . I was heading back home and found these kids just lost. . . Been weeks, and no one came to collect them. . . Well, what could I do? . . We came home together. Been a blessing, these darlin's have been. A blessing.
Finegan's mouth drops open at this unexpected description of a dozen or more orphans, some obviously only toddlers when she collected them, being described by this exhausted woman as a "blessing". He catches himself as he realizes they are watching his reactions.
Oh, indeed. My Joey here's the same. Got separated from his parents and we joined up. He's a blessing, no doubt about it.
The older children are arranging the cups and spooning some sort of tea from a tin into each cup, then pouring hot water from a pot of water taken from the stove. They bring the first cup to Finegan. Finegan says,
Oh, no, give the first cup to, ah, your mistress here. . .
The orphan mistress smiles at his chivalry, and accept the cup, sipping from it with half closed eyes as though it were something magical, a source of rejuvenation. Finegan accepts the next cup.
I can't help but wonder at your fields. I been up and down this coast. Found some folks that planted pumpkin, but most do vegetable gardens in rows, and they work at that day and night. You've got fields . .
The orphan mistress looks up from her cup of tea, suddenly realizing what he's missing from the picture.
I been at this business for some years. Planted corn and amaranth, being vegetarian and all. Don't need meat if you got those. Made a mix for the local organic outlets. Amaranth greens are a good salad too. Made my living at that. No need to plow if you keep the weeds down regular. Just re-seed.
The orphan mistress waves in the direction of the wall of young children clustered behind her, each clutching a cup of tea.
These are the best little weed pickers I ever seen. You pull a weed up, the grubs and beetles fall out, and the chickens clean them up. You go down the rows and knock the bugs off the plants, and the chickens foller along and clean them up. What's left is our produce, bug free. . . and eggs. We got lots of eggs.

Ode to Fans

ZetaTalk has been blessed with a talented and devoted fan club. Most work quietly behind the scenes, providing service by maintaining mirror websites, providing relevant news articles, taking wobble measurements, checking for typos, spreading the word on the Internet, and otherwise holding the household here where ZetaTalk is generated together. Others are an Internet or world reknowned presence in their own right. Today I applaud Eric Pham, David Dees, and John Holmdahl of the World Synergy Institute.

Eric is in the film production business, accomplished on many fronts, personally versed in the full range of activities. He encouraged me to start a newsletter, and was the driving force behind the Zeta Report video series, filling in the technological gaps until I got my feet under me and learned the process. He provided his talent and handiwork as can be seen in the Zeta face intro on the lastest videos. Eric has provided a secure video archive base for all the Zeta Report videos on the Revver website, including those that YouTube refused to host.

David burst onto the Internet scene only in the past few years as a political satirist, though has been an artist all his life. His art work is featured on Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, and David Icke websites on occasion, with an archive on the Rense site. His art work reflects the fact that he is an target="_top">espoused contactee who takes the coming passage seriously.

John Holmdahl, the president of the World Synergy Institute, has a long-standing network of like-minded influential acquaintances that reach around the world and into the stars, including the corridors of the White House. An accomplished wordsmith, John is working behind the scenes to awakening the world to its coming future, with all the possibilities of what this world might become.

I and the Zetas thank these fans, as well as all the others who have contributed so much behind the scenes.
